This is the perfect place to call home for those looking for a quaint village escape surrounded by unspoilt countryside with plenty of village amenities to sample within walking distance of the cottage.

Winster is a rural village on the eastern boundaries of the Peak District National Park, surrounded by delights of the Derbyshire Dales countryside. The hilly nature of the village means there are some outstanding views to be had and plenty of stunning footpaths to explore locally. Winster is within easy reach of all the main walking areas in the southern peaks. There are many things to do around and about, including Chatsworth House and Gardens and Haddon Hall which are within a short drive. The nearby town of Matlock offers an array of eateries and independent shops to enjoy. The river Derwent flows through Matlock to Matlock Bath which is home to Gulliver’s Kingdom and The Heights of Abraham which provide a fun-filled family day out. The popular town of Bakewell is close too.

Step into the cottage hallway, hang up your coat and wander through to the well fitted and equipped kitchen which offers an inviting space to prepare any meals with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Tassimo coffee maker and microwave. Cross the hall to the lounge/diner area offering a haven to relax in. Light the wood burner and sink into the sofa in front of the TV and relax with good company or come together around the table and enjoy a home-cooked meal. Step down a few steps to a small utility space with a washing machine and a shower room with shower and WC. From the hall, stairs lead up to the first floor and you will find a double bedroom which feels light and airy with a wonderful high ceiling, and a twin bedroom decorated with pretty floral wallpaper. There is a further shower room here with shower and WC meaning morning routines will flow with ease. There is also access to the patio from this level.

Outside is a wonderful split level landscaped patio garden approached via steps with a table and chairs ideally placed to take in the far-reaching views over the village and beyond, why not light the BBQ and enjoy dining alfresco. There are steps down to the front of the cottage. Well behaved dogs are welcome and the garden is pet friendly. Parking can be found on West Bank, subject to availability and there is also a small car park at the top of the road.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The property was lovely and very cosy, just what we needed! There wasn't any firewood or kindling provided however thankfully we took our own so this didn't affect us too much. The village is beautiful. Will definitely be staying in this area again!

Clean, comfortable cottage in a lovely, friendly village with a community shop run by local volunteers. The parking off road was not big enough for a RAV4 & we had to park on the road. Getting a space wasn't a problem but you had to block the road to allow passengers to get in & out which inevitably held up traffic as it's quite a busy road.

The accommodation at Yew Cottage is perfect. Two bedrooms with very comfy beds and two bathrooms, a well equipped modern kitchen and cosy lounge. We loved the little garden terrace tucked away behind the cottage. The pub is a few minutes walk away great for Sunday lunch.

A lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Winster is very picturesque with great walking from the doorstep and other attractions within easy reach. Parking on West Bank can be a challenge as it is steep but there are plenty of spaces up the hill or on the flat in the village itself.

Lovely cottage, nicely decorated & well-equipped. Comfortable beds, good showers & comfortable sitting room for evenings. We had a great sunny week so sat out & ate on the patio every day.

Lovely spacious cottage in an ideal location for walking and exploring this beautiful area. Do be aware of steep stairs and access to the garden is only from upstairs or externally which is tricky for dogs or mobility issues. Local pubs and village store friendly and handy. We had a very enjoyable stay.
